There are some story bits in the first, but its not all that necissary to understand the plot of 2

For the most part, P2 does a good job of getting you up to speed on what "happened" in P1. If you're not aware, P1 was essentially an expanded tech demo from some students whom Valve hired to make P1 (the original incarnation, Narbacular Drop, was what got them Valve's attention). A single playthrough - not worrying about hunting Achievements or doing any of the advanced puzzles/redesigned test chambers - would probably take 2-3 hours, or perhaps less. YMMV there.

That being said, P1 is very funny and they give some great throwaway humor to GlaDOS, and is worth playing just for that IMO. But you won't really miss it if you don't ever play it - there are a few minor things with a character that you don't ever actually meet that might matter if you're hardcore into story lore (I think that's it).

It's not needed to play P1 before playing P2, but the overall experience is more fun when you did :-)

I recommend you to play Portal first and then Portal 2. I played Portal 2 first and I didnt knew what GLaDOS meant with killing her. But you can play Portal 2 first and then if you want play Portal.
